Been 3 times now; BRUNCH is edible, but pricey. Brunch service is far better than at dinner, where our waitress thought it was funny that the soup was MUCH too piquant to eat. Coffee is fair, service is less so. At dinner in winter the joint was COLD inside (almost as cold as the waitress's snobby attitude). Okay, SOME people (not us) assume desperately overpriced and fiercely overspiced is the same as "TRENDY", and if so, lets ban every "trendy" joint on the planet. This joint (and it's small enough to be "cozy") does have SOME decent selections, but they are all FAR TOO EXPENSIVE, even after allowing for the sorry ambience. Oh, but THE PIPED-IN MUSIC was pretty good. Wish the service and all the food was also.

We met Sam at the Farmers Market. He told us we should come by for Sunday brunch and we are very happy we did. The food was wonderful, people where great and 10 minutes from our house. We'll be back !!!

We had been here once before prior to the fire. We liked it then and were in the area. The place is very small. The owner was just standing around talking while we waited for our waitress. We ordered cocktails; first mistake. They come in old fashion tiny water glasses. Not worth the price for the small size. The food is okay, but presentation is completely lacking. I agree the prices seem high for the quality. As for atmosphere- it is non-existent. This restaurant could be a cute place with atmosphere, but they are more interested in cramming as many people as possible in the small space and then somewhat ignore you. However, you are so close you can just grab them.

Absolutely the WORST place I have ever gone to eat!!!!! The food is horrible and the prices are WAY to high. Even it the food was half way worth eating, the prices are just outrageous!! Very obnoxious staff, especially if you are there after 7:00 because it seems they have all had a drink or five..... I highly recommend that you NOT go to this establishment (or hole in the wall) to eat !

Excellent food and service. Awesome crab soup, and be sure to check out the daily specials. Sunday brunch is also wonderful, especially when you order up a bloody mary!
